Db2 Distributed end of support (EOS) dates

Product Lifecycle


Abstract

The following table lists end of base support (EOS) dates as well as the earliest end of extended service dates for various versions and editions of Db2, DB2® Universal Database™ (DB2 UDB) and Db2 Connect™ for Windows®, Linux® and UNIX®.

Content

For customers who have purchased their Db2 licences from IBM, the End of Support (Base) column indicates the last date on which you are entitled to base support for your Db2 product (also known as the EOS date). You can extend the support period beyond the EOS date for an additional fee. To arrange a Db2 service extension, contact your local IBM® representative.

For customers who have purchased IBM software which bundles Db2 as a Supporting Program, the End of Support (Base) column indicates the last date on which you are entitled to support for Db2 as part of that IBM software. Extended Support and Continuing Support are not provided. To continue to receive support for Db2 after the end of support date, upgrade the IBM software that bundles Db2 to the latest version of that software. 

Support terms and conditions may differ for the use of Db2 with certain applications. Customers should check directly with their application vendor for the terms and duration of their support for Db2. Read TechNote 1051638 for more information as it relates to SAP.

End of Support (Extended) column indicates the date on which IBM would end extended support for your Db2 product.

Continuing Support extends non-defect support for known issues for select versions past EOS date while customers prepare to upgrade. For details on the Continuing Support program see this page


Please note that the announced dates are also available on the IBM Product Lifecycle Page
